Lack of legal aid puts asylum seekers' lives at risk, charity warns | Law | The Guardian
As a result, “legal aid deserts” have emerged in different parts of the country due to a 56% drop in the number of providers offering legal aid representation for immigration and asylum cases since 2005, the charity found.

There was an even greater reduction in the number of not-for-profit providers, with only 36% remaining in 2018 compared with the number in 2005.// &! https://www.theguardian.com/law/2018/jul/19/i-feel-safe-now-how-legal-aid-protected-asylum-seeker - 'I feel safe now': how legal aid saved a gay man from deportation ‘Naveed’ fled persecution in Pakistan but his plea for UK asylum was initially rejected

Dalit Boys as Young as 12 Languish in Yogi's Jails on 'Attempt to Murder' Charges (The Wire)
Arrested during nationwide protests in April, called by Dalit organisations, the juveniles' families have stated that the boys were picked up by police only because they were Dalits standing up for their rights. “My son’s only crime is that he is a Dalit,” says the father of one of the boys. “We thought that if our son studied well, the family’s fortune would change for the better. But now they have pressed so many charges against him that his whole life will become embroiled in it.” News site The Wire has covered this story and IDSN members in India are currently conducting fact-finding in relation to this case.

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/jul/04/risks-to-children-the-biggest-social-justice-challenge-of-our-time - Risks to children 'the biggest social justice challenge of our time'
Children’s commissioner seeks more help for young people in vulnerable family situations [...] Government spending on early intervention services for children through local authorities has been reduced by 60% since 2010. The research says investing in these services is cost-effective compared with the expense of putting a child into care, which can be as much as £55,000 a year. Local authorities have said there is a growing crisis in children’s social care caused by increasing numbers of children being taken into care or made subject to child protection plans as a result of the failure to provide early support for families.
